Juventus and Galatasaray Might Cook Up Some Transfers

Juventus and Galatasaray might arrange some deals in the next few weeks. The Bianconeri are keen on Nicolò Zaniolo, while the Turkish club is eyeing Weston McKennie. He’s back in Turin following Leeds United’s relegation.

According to Alfredo Pedullà, the ex-Roma star has a €35M release clause, but the fee could be negotiated down to €22/23M, perhaps through a loan with obligation to buy. The Cimbom want to keep the attacker, but they will listen to large offers. Milan were after him in the past, but they are prioritizing foreign targets following their leadership change.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Galatasaray contacted Juventus to signal their interest in the USMNT staple. The Old Lady intended to collect €35M from his permanent sale to the Whites. His price tag isn’t much lower now. A trade could entice both sides. The Azzurri ace wishes to return to Italy.

The Turkish outfit is also tracking Alex Sandro, TuttoSport informs. He could be part of the talks, but he’d most likely join on a free after getting released from his contract.

Our Take on Juventus and Galatasaray

The Old Lady’s love for Zaniolo has permeated multiple front offices. It’ll be easier to haggle with the Cimbom than with Roma, but they’ll surely resist just six months after his arrival. Considering the whole plusvalenze ordeal, it’ll be interesting to see whether the Bianconeri will even be willing to orchestrate swaps again, even though it would be apt in this scenario. They aren’t illegal per se, but the team is under a magnifying lens.
